Just for fun: choose your own member title.

Hello fellow philosophers,

You may have noticed that under my name, Meetup shows a Title field which says "Benevolent Dictator for Life." This is a custom title field which can be customized for any member and shows in this group as well as your main Meetup.com profile. I thought it would be fun if everyone customized their titles to reflect something about yourself, like your vocation, your reason for joining, or something about a philosopher you like. (For example, Ayn Rand = Prime Power, Aristotle = Tragic Hero, Nietzsche = ?bermensch, Descartes = Brain in a Jar, etc.)

Just reply to this email with your chosen title.

On a slightly more serious note, it?s been requested that the next topic be free will. Here are some suggested readings on the topic:
